The British Embassy Warsaw continues to offer a full range of consular services. We have also established a temporary consular presence in Przemyƛl, which can provide initial consular assistance for those arriving in Southern Poland from Ukraine. British nationals requiring consular assistance in Poland should call +48 22 311 0000. Phones are answered 24/7.

FCDO Rapid Deployment Teams have also been deployed to neighbouring countries of Ukraine to support British nationals in need of consular assistance. A range of assistance is available in these countries and we have specially trained consular staff at the borders to help British nationals.
